Actually we headed to Tsugaike, but I can't add that resort right now for some reason... So we parked our beloved Sambar to Tsugaike's parking lot & took a gondola and chairlift as high as we could. Then we started our 5 hour skitour up towards Tsugaike's backcountry. Skied down to Norikura and skinned up again to Norikura ridge from backside. Both descents were ok and snow was pretty fast, but not that deep. After touring we headed to finnish my Japanese trip to Cortina onsen. Pretty much a perfect skitrip in general!
